Lightbulb Alpha-N BMW E92 M3 Full of Carbon Goodies

Alpha-N BMW E92 M3 Full of Carbon Goodies
60
COMMENTS

BMW tuner Alpha-N has released photos and some specs for their Alpha-N BMW M3 Coupe.

On the power front, a combination of a software ECU tune, a Dinan carbon fiber air intake, carbon fiber airbox cover and air intake snorkels, and an Akrapovic exhaust system manages to add 30hp the M3's power figure.

The Alpha-N aero kit makes ample use of carbon fiber, with a CF front spoiler lip with brake cooling vents (by RKP), CF rear diffuser (by Varis), and CF rear spoiler wing (by RKP). The M3 coupe sits lowered on KW coilover suspension. The wheels shown are 19" OZ Superfogiata wheels, wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires. Recaro Pro Racer Hans one racing seats replace the factory M3 seats.

A gorgeous carbon fiber engine cover finishes off the carbon heavy aesthetics of the engine compartment.

No pricing was released with the initial specs and photos.

That is a seriously purposeful and badass tuner M3! It's nice to see tuners like Alpha-N and iND making track specific M3s rather than blinged up baller mobiles.

Never been a fan of blacked out Beemers but I would forgo a space gray M3 for that one...

Beautifully done!

We had the chance to see this M in person during a trip to Germany. The front lip and wing are made by RKP.
